The social atlas of Europe by Dimitris Ballas( )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This social atlas highlights the notion of Europe as a single entity by looking at its physical and population geography simultaneously in new ways, using state-of-the-art Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and new human cartography techniques, building on recent developments and innovative Worldmapper applications. In this atlas, we present nearly two hundred maps and illustrations, painting a picture of Europe, its people and its environment in relation to a wide range of themes and using data from a variety of sources such as the European Values Survey, Eurostat, the International Labour Organisation, the World Bank and the World Health Organization
Rediscovering the world : map transformations of human and physical space by Benjamin Hennig( )

15 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'We need new maps' is the central claim made in this book. In a world increasingly influenced by human action and interaction, we still rely heavily on mapping techniques that were invented to discover unknown places and explore our physical environment. Although the traditional concept of a map is currently being revived in digital environments, the underlying mapping approaches are not capable of making the complexity of human-environment relationships fully comprehensible. Starting from how people can be put on the map in new ways, this book outlines the development of a novel technique that stretches a map according to quantitative data, such as population. The new maps are called gridded cartograms as the method is based on a grid onto which a density-equalizing cartogram technique is applied. The underlying grid ensures the preservation of an accurate geographic reference to the real world. It allows the gridded cartograms to be used as base maps onto which other information can be mapped. This applies to any geographic information from the human and physical environment. As demonstrated through the examples presented in this book, the new maps are not limited to showing population as a defining element for the transformation, but can show any quantitative geospatial data, such as wealth, rainfall, or even the environmental conditions of the oceans. The new maps also work at various scales, from a global perspective down to the scale of urban environments. The gridded cartogram technique is proposed as a new global and local map projection that is a viable and versatile alternative to other conventional map projections. The maps based on this technique open up a wide range of potential new applications to rediscover the diverse geographies of the world. They have the potential to allow us to gain new perspectives through detailed cartographic depictions
